It was definitely stressful, I did expect the RHCE to be a lot harder as I
expected before walking in that there is no way I could pass. The reason is
the crash course is 4 days long where you cram a ~400 page manual. And you
are supposed to study all what you learnt when you get back home every
night. It was hectic. I over-estimated the exam though, just because of the
intensity of the course, but it is not a piece of cake. However, it may not
be as hard as people make it to seem. The following cheat sheet was
inspirational, and I think covers good ground.
This guy aced his exam, but he did study hard, here are his thoughts and
emotions around the exam
